This morning my mom and I headed out (kinda late- too late to attend church first :/ ) to a birthday breakfast at a crepe restaurant for my lil nephew D's 14th birthday! I still can't believe he's 14. He will ALWAYS be 8 in my eyes. Haha I'm sure he'd hate to hear that though.Ahhh, how time flies!
Did I mention his voice has been changing?! Omg, right?
Of course, he never smiles anymore in pictures. =/
I didn't add the pictures I took of everyone who was there. I don't think they'd appreciate me posting all of the candid photos. I'll just keep them in my scrapbook for my eyes only ;P
Madre trying to be lookin too cool in her leopard vest.
Aside from us and a couple of my cousins who were there went with my sister and nephew to go shopping at the outlets. That birthday money was burning a hole in his pockets. Boy do I know the feeling! I just wish someone would have made me realize that saving at least some if not half of all that birthday-money, Christmas-money, just-because-money all those years would eventually add up and be of really good use when I got to be older. Like, the age I am now. Or even just until senior year of high school. We all know that there's tons of expenses senior year with all the events, photos, yearbooks, dances, not to mention your social life.
But even still, money is given to you on those occasions because you're supposed to spend it all up. That's what money is for! I just wish I had started saving when I was younger.
I found out that my aunt and cousin live really close to me! I vaguely remember my mom telling me that there were near us somewhere... But I think it's pretty cool. Now, that's about 4 relatives in my city. Lol if I ever need a place to runaway to I know exactly where to go! Plus, he's going to the same school I am! Idk if he'll be there in the summer like I plan to. But if we run into each other he can gimmie all his lunch money! Win-win!
Speaking of running away- my sister is going to Canada next Tuesday! Okay, okay, it's for her job. But I like to think of it as a mini-vacay. I can't remember how long she's gonna be gone. Maybe just a couple of days. But I get to stay at her place for the time she's gone which is kind of a mini-vacay for me too! But my mom's coming too, we have to watch the house and D. She's only coming because I don't have my license yet =( Otherwise she'd let me stay there and use her car to take D to-and-from school by myself. How bad does that suck, right? Oh well. I'll get it soon... maybe. And my own car too... maybe.
Got two new pairs of reading glasses! Had to settle with a lower magnification than I really wanted to get (2.5 rather than 3 or higher). But I'm just glad that I don't need glasses to see normally. I was really getting tired of holding my books/journals/anything that I'm trying to read or write literally 5 inches from my face to see it clearly.
All in all today was great. Full of laughs, as is every time I'm with my family.
Nothing greater in this world.
I hope YOU are having a great day- whoever you are.
